How big a dog ate the Zantac?
What MG. was it?
I want to confirm the dog ate #5 five / 150mg Zantac.
How long ago?
Do you have 3% Hydrogen Peroxide in the house?
Normally this would not be a problem if the dog had 1 pill, but since it is 5 pills we need to induce vomiting. Please give 1 tablespoon of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to the back of the tongue. Before giving the Peroxide please give a small piece of bread to eat. This will help get things going . Once the Peroxide is given then jostle the stomach to get things aggitated to induce the vomiting. I will stand by to give further instructions. We will repeat the procedure in 10 mins. if it does not work the first time. Joan
After you give the 3% Hydrogen peroxide make sure you jostle the stomach or jog around. The bootle needs to be fizzy to work well. Joan
Please let me know if you have any success? Joan
Let us try one more time. That is 750 mgs of zantac which is way too much for a 16 pound dog. Try another piece of bread wait a couple of Mins. then give 2 tablespoons of the Peroxide to the Back of the tongue. Jostle the stomach well and see if we can get those pills up. Joan
At this point we have two choices, the first is to try and wait this out and see the Vet in the AM. The other choice would be to see the ER vet for a stronger medication to have your baby vomit and to give an activated Charcoal lavage. If it was a smaller dose I would not be concerned since we do use this in dogs, but the amount ingested was way too much. Let me know what you are going to do. I can try and locate an ER vet for you if needed. Joan
Good luck! Best wishes! Joan
